Cities 12 Veiled London by Francesco Verolino

Veiled London by Francesco Verolino

I was a stranger in the city

Out of town were the people I knew

I had that feeling of self-pity

What to do? What to do? What to do?

The outlook was decidedly blue

But as I walked through the foggy streets alone

It turned out to be the luckiest day I've known

Ella Fitzgerald


London in black and white. London declined in the gray smoke of its fog. Mysterious London. Hidden and veiled. Francesco Verolino's shots tell us about a surprising London because it is deeply contemporary in its being so far from the iconography that usually represents it. It is the London that lives off the tourist track, inside the familiarity and habits of which every morning walks through its streets. Verolino tells his London that fascinates him and welcomes him at every return offering his secrets to the curious lens that observes it.

"From London to Naples is a step. – Verolino tells us – I have always loved cities with iconic elements, it is much easier to tell them.

London is an incredible city for street photography, people do not like connections or rather, they are not interested in what happens around them, I have always found them very free to express themselves and with great respect for others. The light is in a perfect balance and both in situations with low clouds and with the sun I have always encountered British style atmospheres.

Every time I come back, about 6 times a year, I discover new incredible places both for urban architecture and for the characters I meet. I have always liked to "dig" into the deep urban fabric, those hidden from tourists, those where the real life of a city takes place. In London this is possible, some neighborhoods have "living points" and are lively.



Francesco Verolino, street photographer from Naples. I have been photographing for 35 years and I love to bring people closer to street photography.

In my life I studied Economics at Federico II in Naples, then 25 years of career as a business consultant. Economics was my first life and photography my second.

My evolution as a photographer is the result of a passion, which then became a full-time activity. Photography is the best way to tell the world, it is a human relationship and a critical language of our reality.

Among my projects in photography my Youtube channel, where I address many topics to  frame street photography. I am very proud of my community of photographers who love "street photography" which is gradually growing qualitatively and quantitatively.
